Right-Wing Twitter Goes Berserk Over News of Trump's Latest Deal with Democrats

Donald Trump on Wednesday struck an agreement with House and Senate minority leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that did not include funding for the president’s famed border wall, according to a statement released by the Democratic leaders.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly insisted “excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to,” but the damage for #MAGA Twitter was done.

Over at Breitbart—the “platform for the alt-right” spearheaded by former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon—the response was swift and not too kind to the one-time nationalist president.

And elsewhere on the Internet, right-wingers expressed a mix of denial, outrage, and—at least on the part of Sean Hannity—blame directed at GOP leaders not named Trump.
